Both thermostats have no power

Am cold! Neither thermostat has power. Checked all breakers and fuses.

What else can I check?

IIRC both thermostats have a fuse either in-line or under the cover. Seems odd though that both would quit at the same time? Did the wires get crossed on your batteries at some time to possibly blow fuses?

Thanks for responding. Have checked the fuses inside the thermostats and all are ok. Called the RV place that checked out the electrical for me. They said to look at the control panels. So I both have been checked out and all wires are secure. I am very puzzled.

I assume you have 12 VDC lights okay. Recommend that you check all of the connections in the battery compartment for loose connections; especially check the frame grounding connection on the back side of the battery compartment. Many of the folks have had issues with loose connections.

Once you have checked the battery compartment, and if still no resolution, pull the fuse panels and check for loose connections on the back side of those panels.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. Will check the battery compartment and get back to you.

Forgot to mention that everything else in the RV is working perfectly.

Are your breakers to the A/C's themselves turned on?? Double check your 110v breakers. They might look ok, but might be tripped. Turn them all the way off and then back on. I can't remember if the A/C themselves power the thermostats. Worth a try

Since your referred to both thermostats, I assume you are trying to run the A/C heat pumps. Have you tried to switch over to the furnace only mode to see if the furnace will run?

Success

Problem is now resolved. Learned a valuable lesson. The fuses in the thermostats themselves were what was bad. Visual inspection of the fuses is not an effective way to determine if they are bad. Took the RV to the shop and they quickly reaolved by testing the fuses with a voltmeter and they were found bad.

Now, I will always have spare fuses and a voltmeter permanently stored in the RV!

Thanks for all the great suggestions.

Still coincidental that both were blown without some sort of short somewhere. Did they offer any explanation as to why or how?
